According to my service manual, besides using GM P/N 1050017 or equivalent
1.) With the engine off and the front wheels off the ground and turned all the way left, add power steering fluid to the "FULL COLD" mark on the fluid level indicator. Leave the capstick removed from the reservoir.
2.) Bleed the system by turning the wheels slowly from lock to lock. Keep fluid level at "FULL COLD" mark. Fluid with air in it is a light tan or red color. Air must be eliminated from the fluid before normal steering action can be obtained.
3.) Repeat Step 2 about 12 times. If the engine had been started, repeat Step 2 about 20 times with the engine off.
4.) Return wheels to the center.
5.) Road test vehicle to be sure steering functions normally and is free from noise.
6.) Inspect for leaks
7.) Recheck fluid level as decribed in Step 1. Make sure the fluid level is at the "HOT" mark after the system has stabilized at its normal operating temperature.
